The Old Vicarage, Laxton
The Old Vicarage in Laxton is a Grade II Listed Victorian vicarage built in 1806.
Several of the original cast iron windows were in a poor condition where a lack of maintenance had allowed corrosion to take a hold. Many frames were seized or so heavily corroded that they were no longer weathertight and a number of the original cast iron windows had been replaced with inferior timber casements. The client asked us to replace them with exact cast iron replicas of the originals.
In total fifteen windows were cast from six patterns, each with a slightly different design.
We produced and fitted solid brass window stays, stay pins and fixings to all of the opening lights, replicating those on the original windows.
The Calibre team, in association with our friends at Cheshire Stained Glass glazed and installed the new windows using traditional methods and materials.
